I've used a lot of different products to give my face a radiant glow, and this is BY FAR THE BEST IVE USED. I apply it before I put on my bb cream, and not only does it give me beautiful glowey skin- but it completely evens out my complexion.
The best part about this product is, ITS ONLY A DOLLAR.

I'e been using this handy stick as a highlighter. I have slightly olive, medium neutral beige skin & this is fantastic for when I want a natural highlight look. I love it on my eyes as a champagne-y color eyeshadow too. Buuuut, I do find it creases on my eyes - be sure to check & finger blend the crease a little. Size of tube makes eye application a little difficult, but it's so perfect for swiping on my cheeks that is forgiven. Sometimes I find it a little dry so after drawing it on cheeks & cupid's bow I use a little Vaseline or Josie Maran Argan Cream to help blend. Gorgeous light beige, champagne color with shimmer (but not sparkles). And $1!!!!!!!!!
PS - Unless it is Halloween I would not use this color on lips. It completely whites them out & is too dry, imo.

I love E.L.F.'s color sticks. This one in Persimmon is a very pretty peachy color on me. I'm very pale and it gives me a positive looking glow for the spring/summer season. I don't tan so with bronzing powders it looks really good, and even without, it still gives me a very warm look. I usually wear the bluish-pinks but with this I can go into the corals/browns instead for a change.
I think it's very believable when you use it lightly. It lights up your face with a peachy glow. I do use a moisturizer with my precision blending sponge to make sure there are no demarcation lines and it is blended in well. I really believe that's the key to using the color sticks and blending. I have tried brushes and wedges, also but still found the sponge to be the best especially when I added a bit of moisturizer to add creaminess to it.
It has a slight shimmer, but if you use it sparingly, the shimmer isn't noticeable. It shows up more as a glow. I've used it under my browbone, on my cheeks, and also, on my lips. When I use it on my lips, I'll also add clear lip gloss. Play with the amounts you use to see what works for you. Too much will result in a sparkle fairy look and some complain about that. Go lightly and you can adjust. A little goes a long way. It does have the orange scent, which I happen to love, and it does go away as soon as you apply it.
I think for a buck you just can't go wrong. This stick has so many uses it's really a multi-tasker, depending on your coloring. You just can't go wrong.

I like this product concept but I think I may have purchased the wrong color.
Persimmon is a shimmery mauve color, but it has a little too much frost in it for my skin tone. On my cheeks it looked a little too highlighter-ish - too much shimmer. On my lips it was way too frosty.
I would like to try it again, maybe in a color without as much shimmer.

I am a huge fan of the ELF All Over Color Stick in Spotlight. This, however, is like a whole different product, it was so dry and difficult to blend.
I usually like hybrid-products, but this one.. it's like it's just the worst of both worlds, really. The colour payoff is way too weak and the product itself is waaaaay to glittery to act as a blush, but still too "cheek-coloured" to look like a natural highlight. How many women are naturally purple-pink-ish on the very top of our cheekbones (where a highlighter is supposed to be applied)?
And, it is really not that pigmented, which is usually a good thing when it comes to highlighting (as I prefer a subtle, sophisticated emphasize of my bone structure, rather than looking like a 12-year old who got lost in Sephora), but it's like this product just doesn't want to show up at all! But well, it IS possible to build this colour up, so it is not entirely useless.
I can make it work if I use it in combination with other products. But IT IS VERY GLITTERY. Not shimmery, not sheeny, not glowy, not dewy, IT HAS CHUNKS OF SILVER GLITTER IN IT! This is not so obvious when you just apply it (especially if you put an effort into blending and building up), but after a poor 2 hour duration (on normal-dry skin), the colour and "glow" fade away, and huge glitter particles are just randomly placed on the cheeks. Not chic. I have just had it for the winter, and I guess it's much worse during summer.
Maybe I got a bad one. Maybe it just does not work for me. 2 lippies given for the cheap price and for the 2 hours it managed to look beautiful.
I wish they made these colours in a matte finish.

I originally picked this up on a whim, thinking I could use it for lips, eyes, and cheeks when I go on vacation. See, I have this terrible habit of leaving my makeup at whatever hotel/beach house/family's house I'm staying it, so I always pack light and cheap when it comes to cosmetics (I finally caved and bought one of those giant makeup cases to store everything in, so it's not that big of an issue anymore). Shockingly, I actually like this product! I can't use it straight from the tube though, because doing so gives me too heavy of an application. I normally dust a brush over it and swirl this on my cheeks if I'll be going somewhere where I won't be in a lot of natrual light. I find that this appears really unnatrual in natrual light when I use it on my cheeks. On my lips, it look alright, but I have so many lip products that I never reach for this. If I do use it on my lips, it gives me a bronzey-pink look that compliments my fair skin, but the taste/scent is off-putting. However, I LOVE it on my eyes. It's a pretty flush of pink that brightens up my whole face. It will crease, so I use the elf eyelid primer before I apply this. I load an eyeshadow brush with this product, then apply it to my eyelid, and a bit on the lower lash line. It gives a really nice look with subtle shimmer that catches the light. And for a dollar, it's a great buy. I'm really glad I decided to pick this up.

People don't seem to be too fond of this product, but I really do like it!
I wear this as a highlighter on my cheekbones and in the inner corners of my eyes - the colour is similar to Benefit's Highbeam, a pinkish silver / champagne, however I find this a lot easier to apply and more sutble than Benefits offering, which is a good thing as Highbeam is too stark and sparkly for me. For 1 Dollar, I would definitely pick this up again!

I bought this one because I thought it could be used as many things. I tried it out today and quickly found out that it wasn´t as good as it seemed. When I put it on my lips, they become silvery, same with the cheeks. it is a beautiful pinkish color, but it is way to silvery for me. I think it works well as a eyeshadow/eyeshadow base though:)

ELF's All Over Color Sticks are multi tasking cream sticks that "add a beautiful glow to your eyes, lips, or face". ELF claims that their color sticks deliver "gorgeous color that illuminates and instantly conditions skin for fresh and natural color all day long". ELF, don't lie, you and I both know that this product doesn't condition. At all. ELF always mentions that this product was designed, formulated, and tested by their team of professional makeup artists. ELF offers six shades, I have Persimmon, but I really want to get Pink Lemonade. I bought this All Over Color Stick at Target for $1. ELF products can be bought online at eyeslipsface.com, or in store at select Big Lots, Drugstores, Kmart, Target, or Walmart. These Color Sticks contain .14oz/4g. ELF is a cruelty free, vegan friendly brand. This product was made in China.
ELF's All Over Color Sticks come in a small, white, twist up tube, similar to a lipstick tube but shorter and wider. The name of the product was written on the front of the tube but it's rubbed off already. The name of the shade can be found on the bottom of the tube. A clear plastic cap snaps on firmly, protecting the product from drying out. This tube doesn't twist up very easily, it actually takes a ton of effort. Like I need to put the bottom of my shirt around it to twist it, it's hard to get a grip on. It might just be my tube though. Packaging for this product, like most of ELF's, is pretty meh.
The texture of ELF's All Over Color Stick is quite dry, so dry that it's cracked in the tube. I think everyone tends to expect poor color payoff from stiff products like this one, but that's not the case for Persimmon. Two swipes give a decent amount of color. This product isn't mean to be super pigmented, it's the nature of the type of product it is. So what exactly are ELF's All Over Color Sticks for? Practically everything. These cream sticks can be used as blush, bronzer, highlight, lip color, eyeshadow, or eyeshadow base. What each product works best as depends on the shade you have. I find that Persimmon is best for highlighting cheekbones and under the brow. Persimmon is a soft, frosty, pink champagne that goes on sheer at first, but it can be built up to a very shimmery pink. The finish isn't glittery, just a nice shimmer that catches the light nicely, unless you pile the product on. I think Persimmon looks quite natural on the cheekbones if you have a cool skin tone. I get a full day's wear from this product.
I think Persimmon is too frosty to be used as a blush, and it isn't really a color I'd like on my eyes. I've worn this cream product on the lips as well, and it held up surprisingly well, I got about an hour and a half of wear, but it felt dry, and I didn't like the color or finish on my lips.
ELF's All Over Color Sticks has a strong, obnoxious scent. ELF calls it "orange vanilla", which sounds icky enough, but it's even worse than it sounds. This is a very obnoxious, artificial small that transfers onto the skin and sits there for about 20 minutes. It tastes just as bad too if you use this product on your lips. ELF's All Over Color Sticks are not for the faint of nose.
I'm a fan of ELF's All Over Color Stick in Persimmon. That being said, it's far from a perfect product. Packaging is cheap but that's to be expected from ELF. The scent is really gross. I would appreciate it if the texture was a little bit creamier, but I can work with it the way it is. The color pay off is just right for the type of producr. Persimmon is a good highlight, but I don't really like it for any other uses, mainly because of it's frosty finish. I probably won't repurchase Persimmon, but I'll continue to use it and I'll definitely buy a few other shades. I suggest trying the shade that speaks most to you, who doesn't want a multi-purpose product for just a buck?

I actually do really like this product. But ONLY for highlighting the brow bone and the cheek bone. I wouldn't recommend using this as a blush because I find it way to shimmery. Also I wouldn't use this for my lips because it can be a little drying. Anyway, It does have a funky scent to it though. But that's alright since you can't really smell it when its on your face. But overall it does a marvelous job as a highlighter and would definitely buy this again.
